Does anyone know of a good book or website(s) with information on creating different biotypes.. specifically, a river in India/Sri Lanka?

I've found a few sites but they aren't very good. They will do an Indian river biotope and then have plants in it that are from Africa or South America. Not very accurate if you ask me.

Hi,

I have the book "Aquarium designs inspired by Nature" by Peter Hiscock. It has a number of very nice biotope setups with a fair amount of detailed suggestions including "Southeast Asian Stream" and "Indian River". Check it out its quite good. A good web resource is http://fish.mongabay.com Look under "Biotope Aquaria".

Ciao

Yup, I have that one, too. I think he recycled some of the general information for both books (stuff in the first part of the enzyclopedia). Thare are some similarities between pictures/diagrams both book. Nevertheless, I think they are both worth owning.
